Hi, I'm looking to introduce some Lop onto our smallholding, either a breeding sow, in pig preferably, or some weaners we can bring on, is there anything available at present.

Hi Rob,

Your best option would be our show and sale at the end of this week in Melton Mowbray as part of the rare breed sale event. It is a fantastic event and there will be up to 30 lops to choose from, in pig females and young maidens ready to go to the boar. There will also be boars on sale if you wanted to set up a pair of breeding pigs or so, alternatively there is A.I. available from Deer Park in Ireland.
If this does not suit let me know and we can try to locate some stock but if you can I would try not to miss the event at Melton.
Details on Melton found here - https://www.britishloppig.org.uk/news-and-events/view/are-you-ready-for-the-lop-sale-at-melton-mowbray

All the best,
Giles

What days is the actual sale on rather than the show, or is it over both days, I’m going to struggle making both days so want to be present for the sales if possible.
